Fabulous, quirky pair of brooches in the shape of a man and woman. They are resin and in excellent condition. The pieces are from Cilea Paris and are hallmarked on the reverse. The larger pin, the man, is 5" tall and 3 1/2" wide.
From the internet: French design house Cilea, who you may well recognize from their collaborations with Lanvin. Quick Internet summary: Monique Vedié, born in Paris in 1924, was the creator of costume jewelry for the House of Vedié, known for their flamboyant designs in richly colored cellulose acetate. Before retiring in 1992, she worked with many prestigious Parisian fashion houses and collaborated with couturiers. The signature style established by Vedié is continued by present designer Stéphane Ravel and is marketed under the name of Ciléa. Early pieces are unsigned, current designs from 2009 are signed ‘Ciléa Paris’. All brooches are handmade in Paris.
